“Serrano ham to die for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

Friendly owner who hails from just outside Barcelona good for a chat whilst you salivate over the prospect of eating the ham. I was impressed with my own self control - not only did the ham survive the walk back to our rented apartment but the other four slices went in the fridge for this evening - yum, yum.

“The best tapas outside Spain!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

Having been an avid fan of Spanish cuisine for many years and having had a house in Asturias for 7 years, I know good tapas when I see it or eat it. The Spanish Shop in Exmouth may be tucked away in the little indoor market, but it delivers a huge 10 out of 10 when it comes to traditional, fresh, home prepared and well presented Spanish tapas. I have today eaten amazing calamares, succulent gambas, spicy chorizo, mouth watering iberico jamon, crispy savoury croquetas and patatas with a stunning alioli!! And the best thing....all delivered with a smile and at an unbelievable price!! This place is a true undiscovered classic...... Book a table quickly before the masses discover it!! Muchas gracias Bogdan y amigos.
